I'm hesistant to spend much on a nice bike frame because I use my bike for errands and commuting to work and leave it outside unattended a lot. I always remove my battery and take it with me while I shop. I find it quite cumbersome, it would be nice to have a setup like yours with the battery integrated into the frame and locked in there some how.
I am currently saving pennies for Lipo.
Bike is running 16s5p Cell_man a123 pack for testing purpose.
I may commute this bike,
I could park @ my current employer, carefree.
My city contains most of the homeless/addicts to the downtown core.
Area's outside of downtown are worry free for the most part.
I live downtown & would not leave my bike unattended for 2sec.
Where I work, I could leave it unlocked out in the shade.
Moral of the story, consider where you park. Get a quality lock.
This bike originally had a locking battery box.
If I used it for regular commuting, I would have done what JoramsWeapon did.(top of page4)
Maintaining the locking box. Nice clean look.
I'm looking for a fast street bike over a commuter though.
So custom case and Lipo.
